Hello!  The trees are bare, the weather is getting chillier...it must mean one thing - Winter is here!  We think the park looks beautiful at this time of year, and although we're winding down a bit, we still have some events across this month for you all to join in on!

In this issue:
Any questions or comments, please send them through to our Community Outreach Officer, Joelle at Joelle.Copeland@towerhamlets.gov.uk.  We'd love to hear from you!
 

Festive Tea Dance

Yesterday we held our annual festive tea dance for the over 50s in the Hub building.  We had over 80 people come along who tucked into a delicious lunch followed by some mulled wine and festive tunes!  We run our tea dance twice a year and it's always a great success.  Looking forward to seeing everyone again in the Summer!

Our skate dome will shortly be given a festive makeover but we'll be looking to get it repainted in January.  Earlier this year, local artist Helena Laczko painted the skate dome in a rainbow bee theme, raising awareness of the need for insects in nature.
